Today you have a password for everything. A password for your computer, passwords for your social media accounts, passwords for your work accounts and much more. Everything has a password. It is not easy to keep up with sometimes and that has led many people to use the same username and password for everything which makes it potentially easier for someone to break into your accounts. At Nicely Done Sites we highly recommend using strong passwords and that is why when we develop a website a strong password is set up on them. But, how can you keep track of all of these usernames and passwords? Use password managers!

What Do Password Managers Do?

Password managers are for the most part pretty simple. They store usernames and passwords so that when you visit a website it will automatically fill it in so you can immediately log in. These passwords are either stored locally on the machine or on the cloud behind a master password and encrypted (which you will need to remember!). Using password managers can make your life so much easier. Or you can just write all of the passwords down on a piece of paper. It’s your choice.

When it comes to using a password manager you have a lot of options. You already have one installed on your computer as most web browsers have one but that only works with that browser and on that computer (and they are accessible to anyone who has access to that computer) though they can be exported as well. In this piece we will detail some of the top password managers that you can use. Whether you want to use a password manager is your choice but they can make your life just a bit easier.
